Previously it has not been possible to train the whole team simultaneously on complex procedures in a fully realistic simulated environment. Orzone announces novel functionalities in the modular surgical/interventional operating theatre (Orcamp), enabling the integration of various simulators for multidisciplinary team based training.
Today's complex procedures require in many cases collaboration between the anaesthesiologist and the operator, such as in trauma situations. Previously it has not been possible to train the whole team simultaneously on these complex procedures without using actors or scripts at least for part of the training need (e.g. training focus has realistically focused on either the anaesthesiology elements or the surgical/intervention component). In addition there has been a lack of structured tools for briefing and debriefing for team scenarios that evolve these complex procedures.
Orzone recently participated at CIRSE in Munich where multidisciplinary simulated team training was conducted by the use of Orcamp, equipped with two leading simulators; VIST®-C and SimMan® 3G.
With the VIST®-C (high-fidelity procedural VR simulator) and the SimMan® 3G (a realistic, adult full-body patient simulator) the OR team training could involve complex training components for all team members enabling multidisciplinary team based training.
The novel functionality means that the complex procedures can be synchronized through a set of innovative tools giving the operator and the anaesthesiologist the possibility to interact whilst each of them running highly realistic simulations for their area of expertise.
Orcamp; the modular platform for multidisciplinary training, where medical teams are enabled to train and collaborate in real life situations. A unique comprehensive training environment which can be used for facilitating the harmonisation of training and assessment of knowledge, skills and behaviours. The smaller screens in the foreground is running the case presentation and the procedure specific team briefing/debriefing tools.
In a separate announcement Orzone publicize the novel tool; Orsync - a tool for integrated multiple video channels, annotations, task analysis and procedure checklist, metrics from various simulators and structured assessment methods. This tool also contains futures for tracking multiple people and was successfully used during the training sessions at CIRSE.

Orzone, the creator of Orcamp is committed to improving the quality of healthcare and minimizing the risk of medical errors by developing creative training and assessment solutions based on advanced web and simulation technology. Orzone works in co-operation with the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS) to synchronize European medical training. This collaboration has resulted in the creation of a comprehensive electronic platform; Ortrac, to support medical training, assessment and continuous professional development (CME/CPD).
